Dragsters & Racers
Dragster STEM kits are the perfect solution for providing students with everything they need to design and build their own dragster vehicle. A complete kit for each student will include a body blank, CO2 cartridge, axles with washers and wheels, screw eyes, and straws. More extensive kits may also include Styrofoam body blanks, sandpaper, graph paper, design guides, and storage boxes.
If extra supplies are needed, wheel kits come in 8 different colors and can include axles and cartridges, or simply be a pack of front or rear wheels. You can also purchase a Styrofoam or wood body blank separately, along with washers, screw eyes, straws, axles, and CO2 cartridges.
Other accessories you may need from a school supplier include stopwatches, firing pins, Styrofoam cutters, and polystyrene sheets. We also provide elevated racetracks, launchers, paint stands, and an educational DVD that shows students the basics of designing and building their dragster.
Mousetrap racers are a fun STEM product for schools and students can learn the concepts of propulsion, design, gears, kinetic and potential energy, simple machines, friction, engineering, and physics. They get to explore their creativity while developing critical thinking and problem solving skills. Mousetrap racers are a great educational toy to introduce the scientific method and process of innovation.
In addition to mousetrap racers, ABS also has several other fun problem-solving STEM toys. The jet balloon racer challenges students to keep the balloon filled with air to power the Styrofoam racer. The electric car kit gets kids experimenting with electric and solar power sources. The egg drop vehicle kit invites students to keep their egg intact when the vehicle is pushed off a table. The marble mania kit is great for small groups competing to design a marble-powered vehicle for distance or originality. The air prop racer is a versatile kit which uses a propeller to drive a Styrofoam vehicle. It can be attached in multiple ways and used to push or pull along a track.
